JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2006 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Terell Stafford B3 Allen's Big Band

We got in line at Montage for the Terell Stafford B3 Band, trumpet, organ and drums. The line was long but they were serving beers on the sidewalk so we hung in there. The show started inside and we were still out on the sidewalk but there were only six people in front of us so we didn't think we would have to wait long. The crowd must have liked this band because no one was leaving. Festival promoter, John Nugent, darted by and announced that there was "a terrific band at Kilbourn and there were plenty of seats" but just then we were let in. We quickly determined that Terell Stafford was too tame for us and we dashed over to Kilbourn for Tom Harrell. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
